JUNGLE GIRL volume 1 hardcover collects issues 0 to 5 of this first series, published by Dynamite Entertainment.
Co-written by Frank Cho, well known for his voluptuous images of comic strip Liberty Meadows, with art by Adriano Batista (best known for his work on “bad girl” comics like Bad Kitty and Chastity.
Jungle Girl is a modern day adventure on a remote “lost in time” island. Our title character is a sexy, skilled and smart female, constantly surprising those she meets, as well as the reader!
The story, assisted by Doug Murray, flows very quickly; this entire hardcover should easily be read under an hour. You might take longer, if you want to stare and study the stunning cover art by Cho and interior pages by Batista.
The back of the book concludes with some sketch art. Nice!
A fun, entertaining read. Certainly more fulfilling all at once in this slightly over-sized hardcover, than if reading issue to issue.
7 out of 10.
